Security forces in Baghdad were hunting for three U.S. citizens who Iraqi lawmakers said Monday had been kidnapped, which, if confirmed, would make them the first Americans abducted in the country since U.S. troops withdrew in 2011 .The U.S. State Department said on Sunday it was working with Iraqi authorities to locate Americans reported missing, without confirming they had been kidnapped.The Iraqi government has struggled to rein in the Shiite militias, many of which fought the U.S. military following the 2003 invasion and have previously been accused of killing and abducting American nationals.In Sept., 18 Turks taken in Baghdad by an armed group that used a Shiite Muslim slogan were released following several weeks in detention.
